I like good beer but just don't have time to brew my own yet so I do the next best thing and buy it on sale when I can. These were all buy 1 get 1 free at my local beverage store. Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow.

It's easy to slam things. Myself, I don't care what critics say. I looked at all those ratings long ago. I prefer to be my own person. I try it myself and if I like it I buy it. Hmmmmmm. You ever drink any of these?

They may have nailed it on the Schmidts beer though.

Sorry. Couldn't help busting your balls, Larry. That's great that your local distributor has buy one-get one sales. I've never heard of that and would no doubt have purchased some too. You have quite a bit of beer to drink now, that's for sure!

24 beers in a case. They probably run around $25-30 each normally.

Well it ends up being 12 cases of 24 bottles each. I bought the Magic Hat at 16.00 a case and the rest at 18.00 a case. Decent beer at Budweiser prices. The honeyraspberry was sweet and very tasty.
Usual price would be double this.:db

That's ok Mike. Actually I thought the Schmidts might have been overrated.
It will last me a good 7 - 8 months I figure.:b

Yeah, I've never heard of that. Upon further review, there aren't many beers I wouldn't buy for half price! I hope it's all still good in 7-8 months.

That's an awesome deal Larry.

the honey raspberry is very tempting.. we have a summer ale here that tastes like a shandy, am not a big beer drinker myself, a lot of them taste bitter.. But I do like a cold shandy on a hot day.

It's a pretty safe bet Mike. I've stocked up like this before and not had any problems with the beer going bad.

I work for a beer distributor, so I've seen sales like this before. The distributor was either really long on inventory or the product was getting close to the "Out of Code" date, and they did a fire sale. Do they possibly have an inventory tax coming up?

Nothing wrong with the product, it was climate controlled before it left the warehouse, and as long as you keep it cool and out of sunlight it should be good for another year or so. It might not taste as good as it did when it was "In Code", but it's not going to kill you, and you probably won't even notice the difference.

Beer ratings, and wine ratings are all pretty much subjective...just drink what you like...you can't go wrong with that.

Peace,
Bob

Update: The last 17 bottles are in my beer fridge. I just can't understand where it all went. It's time to go on another beer run. And I'm hoping there are some buy 1 get 1 free deals. :sm

I have to keep cheap beer in the fridge for some of my friends who do not appreciate good beer. "It's just too dark for them"
